Preparation facts

Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients

1 lb beef top round steak, cut 1 inch thick

6 cups torn romaine lettuce

1 medium cucumber, thinly sliced

1/2 small red onion, cut into thin wedges

2 Tbs crumbled feta cheese

8 Greek or ripe olives (optional)

2 pita breads, toasted, cut into wedges

Marinade:

2/3 cup fresh lemon juice

1/3 cup olive oil

2 tsp dried oregano

1/2 tsp each salt and pepper

Whisk marinade ingredients in small bowl. Place beef steak and 1/2 of marinade in food-safe plastic bag; turn to coat. Close bag securely and marinate in refrigerator 6 hours or as long as overnight, turning occasionally. Reserve remaining marinade.

Remove steak; discard marinade. Place steak on rack in broiler pan so surface of beef is 2 to 3 inches from heat. Broil 17 to 18 minutes for medium rare doneness, turning once. Remove; let stand 10 minutes. Carve into thin slices.

Combine beef, lettuce, cucumber and onion in large bowl. Add reserved marinade; toss. Sprinkle with cheese and olives. Serve with pita wedges.

To grill, place steak on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, uncovered, 16 to 18 minutes for medium rare, turning occasionally.
